ohio motto and nickname

During the early 1950s, the Ohio legislature sponsored a contest for selecting a state motto. "With God All Things Are Possible" became Ohio's state motto on October 1, 1959. James Mastronardo, a twelve-year-old boy recommended this quotation from the Bible.

In 1997, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a suit against Ohio and its state motto, claiming that this phrase from the Bible violated the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guarantees religious freedom and a separation of church and state. Various federal courts sided with Ohio, allowing the state to retain the motto. Judges ruled that Ohio's motto does not endorse a specific God and, thus, was not a violation of the First Amendment. Ohio is one of five states with the word "God" in their mottos.

  • The nickname for Ohio is The Buckeye State. Partly because many buckeye trees once covered Ohio's hills and plains. The name buckeye stems from native Americans - Indians called the nut "hetuck" (meaning buck eye, as the markings on the nut resemble the eye of a deer).
ohio state song
  • sailed away;Wandered afar;Crossed the mighty restless sea;Looked for where I ought to be.Cities so grand, mountains above,Led to this land I love.
  • Chorus
  • Beautiful Ohio, where the golden grainDwarf the lovely flowers in the summer rain.Cities rising high, silhouette the sky.Freedom is supreme in this majestic land;Mighty factories seem to hum in tune, so grand.Beautiful Ohio, thy wonders are in view,Land where my dreams all come true!
Piatt CastlesNear West Liberty along State Route 245 are two historic homes: Mac-A-Cheek Castle and Mac-O-Chee Castle. Built by the Piatt brothers, these buildings housed several generations of Piatts and served as an active political and literary site. Both Mac-A-Cheek and the Mac-O-Chee castles reflect the men who built them and each generation of the Piatt family has continued to contribute to literature, science, and the arts
Buxton InnThe Buxton Inn, located in Granville, is the only historic tavern still in continuous service. Built in 1812, the Inn lodged President William McKinley, Henry Ward Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and other American icons. Rumors abound that the Inn is haunted by two ghosts! Through the years, this building has served as a school, a church, and even a courthouse. A Kentucky slave named John stood trial here for extradition and was exonerated by Judge Samuel Bancroft who ruled that the Black Code of Ohio was unconstitutional, thus changing Ohio’s history forever
Granville Female AcademyThe Victorian House next door was built around 1880 and was at one time used as boarding rooms for students at the Granville Female Academy.The Granville Female Academy sits at the corner of Main and Elm and was completed in 1834 for a cost of about three thousand dollars. Although remodeled in the Greek Revival style, the fanlike features and the refined molded cornice with gable returns show this building as a mature Federal Style. Young women paid sixty cents a week to study arithmetic, writing, orthography and natural philosophy.
